The 2007 Indigenous Studies & Indigenous Knowledge Conference will be held in Sydney, 11-13 July 2007, and hosted by Jumbunna Indigenous House of Learning and the Indigenous Program Units at University of Technology, Sydney with our partners and supporters .

The 2007 Conference follows on from the (Re)contesting Indigenous Knowledge & Indigenous Studies Conference hosted by the Oodgeroo Unit , Queensland University of Technology, on Queensland's Gold Coast in 2006.

A key purpose of the 2006 Conference was to draw colleagues from across the field of education and research to discuss and share developments in areas of Indigenous knowledge and Indigenous Studies. The 2007 Conference objective is to build on our discussions from the Gold Coast Conference, and to include a focus on Indigenous Student Support Services. Our keynote and Plenary speakers will help set the context for engagements with the various themes.

Call for papers 

Papers are now being called for and colleagues are asked to register on line a title, nominate theme being focused on, and a short bio and abstract (100 words) when filling out the registration form. The deadline for papers has passed for the first two themes, and all session slots have now been filled. However, we will extend the deadline for papers in the Indigenous Student Support theme as we have about five slots remaining. All session slots for presenting papers are now full.

All are encouraged to attend and share progress and development in their field so that others can benefit from and join our continued efforts to improve opportunities for Indigenous people.

The Conference is now fully booked, and registration is now closed.
